Update: Powder snow has now released as part of Caves & Cliffs Part I.
One of the coolest new features to arrive in Caves & Cliffs Part I, powder snow introduces fun new mechanics to experiment with as well as hazards to be wary of:
- Mobs inside a block of powder snow start to freeze and eventually take damage
- Players can protect themselves from powder snow by equipping leather armor
- Cauldrons fill up in snowy weather, creating a renewable source of powder snow. It will also generate naturally in certain snowy biomes when Caves & Cliffs: Part II releases
- Buckets can be used to scoop up and place powder snow
- Most mobs cannot walk on powder snow and fall into the block instead
- Skeletons transform into strays after standing in powder snow for awhile
- Wearing Leather Boots allows a player or mob to walk on Powder Snow without falling in
